Hike to Chalet des Pyramides

in Chamonix-Mont-Blanc
Presentation

A splendid view of the Bossons glacier icefall, with its seracs and ice pinnacles. The chalet sits perched on the slopes of the Montagne de la Cote - food and drinks available. Terrace with panoramic views.

From Les Bossons chair lift car park, follow the "Le Tremplin" road and take the first trail on your right which goes up into the forest. Keep going until the top of the chair lift and carry on to "Chalet du Glacier des Bossons".
Before you reach the chalet, take the path leading uphill on your right, which winds its way up through the forest. Once above the tree line, the path takes you across steep gullies and ascends sharply up to the Chalet des Pyramides.

More experienced hikers can carry on further to La Jonction. You can also take the Bossons chairlift, depending on operating periods, to start the hike from the Chalet du Glacier des Bossons.
